Beginning today and rolling out over the next couple of weeks there is a new option for G Suite for Education users to share templates to a domain-wide gallery. G Suite administrators should already see an option to submit templates to a domain-wide gallery (admins, you must enable the feature if you had disabled the old template gallery option). Beginning later this week and throughout the next couple of weeks end-users (teachers and students) will be able to submit templates to your domain gallery. Those templates will be available to anyone in the domain when they go to create a new document, forms, spreadsheet, or slide presentation.
Applications for Education
Creating and distributing templates is a great option for teachers who want their students to follow a prescribed format for things like lab reports or research outlines.
You can learn more about creating and using templates in my online course Getting Going With G Suite.
